Erick has over 25 years of Digital/Offset Printing and Web Design. Recently, he wanted to take on a new challenge, helping others. By chance, He was reintroduced to virtual reality by his good friend who is a independent virtual reality developer. With VR has coming so far with its technology and realism, He immediately saw the potential for mental and physical pain distraction and founded Virtual Relief. An nonprofit organization that was created to bring VR and other technology to people suffering from pain. Its mission was to remove the barriers that may stand in the way of people accessing the technology who could really benefit from it. The idea was born at the Center for Social Change. With their support VRO has been able to impact the lives of individuals by introducing them to the technology of virtual reality.
